No stranger to epic fantasy, Sophie’s experience displaying joy, sorrow, and everything in between on Game of Thrones would certainly be an asset to the show. We can absolutely see her bringing Genya’s careful, mysterious energy to the screen.
She’s probably not super well-known, but you might’ve noticed her in The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, or Pride and Prejudice and Zombies as Lydia Bennet. She definitely has a beautiful face, but she also has some fierceness in her and she can hold her own on screen amongst the likes of big names Amy Adams and Kiera Knightley.
She’s a wonderful actress who I think could play Genya so well that you’ll forget she’s supposed to be a redhead. After all, it’s about how well she acts the role, and Emeraude would own it. We fell in love with her as Isabelle in Shadowhunters, and we could certainly fall in love with her as Genya.
